Great for the eyes, just as good for the skin and a pro at makeup removal. Cucumbers contain natural anti-inflammatory properties that help cleanse the skin, soothe it and get rid of irritation; if any. You could add a few drops of milk or olive oil to cucumbers if your makeup is too heavy; it works by itself on minimal makeup.
Almond Oil + Milk
Milk is excellent for the skin and so is almond oil as they hydrate the skin, replenish it and deliver essential nutrients to it. Take a few drops of almond oil and add it to a tablespoon of milk. Swipe it all over your face with a cotton round; let it sit there until you find no traces of milk. This recipe is easy to make and keeps your skin feeling refreshed after a tough day!

Olive oil is an excellent skin treatment, which not just helps remove makeup but also has superb skin healing properties. Mix it with water in the ration of 2:1 (Olive oil: Water) and massage it all over your face including the neck area. Always make sure that you remove oil from your face before hitting the sack.
